Block of the Month Quilting Pattern - Twinkle Twinkle

I've just finished another Block for my new block of the month quilting pattern. This week it's all about Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
Truth is I was not happy with my fist idea for this block so went back to the drawing board and came up with a new design.

Stars are such wonderful things aren't they? Its no wonder that they inspire so many craft people.
Here are a few photos for you to enjoy.

Star in wool, is he knitted or crocheted?

Timber button stars, wish these were amongst my button collection!

Knitted stars ready for felting

Hand pieced stars in lovely fabrics

I'm seeing stars by Twenty-eighth Street.

Which brings me to my star inspired block.
With a few hand pieced stars of my own...













and a small village on the hill.




































Twinkle Twinkle Little Star has always been one of the favourite nursery rhymes. I have very find memories of my children when they were younger beaming with delight as they performed the actions as I sang along. I can still see their chubby little fingers being twinkling stars.

Have you ever incorporated stars into one of your sewing projects?
Feel free to leave a comment and share your project ideas with others.

Until next time!

I am loving these blocks so far. I use stars all the time in my quilts. In fact, you will see stars on my latest blog post on a BOM quilt. The blocks were to have hearts appliqued and I substituted stars....

Love the hand-pieced stars. Great work. I put gold stars on an Americana quilts that I gave away. They added the right touch. Have a gread day. Did you use English paper piecing for piecing the stars? Great work. Have a great day.

Your embroidery is so nice and even. Do you use the backstitch method or something else?

That is really sweet Sweet and I think that i am going to try something like that!

Looking close at your yellow star, I would say it is done in single crochet. I do both knitting and crocheting, but that looks just like single crochet. Cute little star.
